  • Can anyone help me with my computer/possible virus issue?

    About a week ago, I got a bunch of warnings from my anti-virus software about a virus being blocked. They kept coming up repeatedly, but I didn't know what to do other than tell it to keep blocking the virus. Now, I can't connect to IE. I can connect to AIM, and my computer is showing a wireless connection, but anytime I try to open a web page it says it can't connect.

    When I tell it to diagnose the problem, it says to "verify the current proxy server configuration." I don't use a proxy server. What does this mean? How do I fix it? Is this caused by the virus that attacked my computer? My virus scans haven't found anything, and I haven't been able to find a virus myself (although I'm not sure what I'm looking for). I'd like to find a solution other than wiping my computer and losing my files.

    Help, anyone? :(

  • What is the name of this book?

    When I was younger I read a book about an old man with a hot air balloon (a teacher maybe? grandfather? I don't know...) . The old man (and a few kids who came with him) would use the balloon to visit different periods in time. I know that in one of the books they traveled back to the time of the dinosaurs.

    The books were part of a series, with each book focused on a different time period. Any help would be appreciated.

    It's driving me crazy that I can't remember the name of these books! :-P

  • What are some good homemade fungus sprays for plants?

    I have a pumpkin plant that has developed very large grey/white patches of fungus on it's leaves. I've looked up some treatments online, but there are a TON of different ones, and I'm not sure which to try. Can anyone tell me what homemade fungus sprays you have used on your plants(particularly pumpkins), and how well they worked?

  • What do you think is the biggest obstacle to peace?

    I have my own ideas on this, but I'm curious to see what other people think. What do you think is the biggest obstacle to peace?

    A side note: if you want a chance at best answer, don't just say "organized religion" (which, judging from responses to similar questions, will probably be the most popular answer). If that is what you think, tell me what SPECIFICALLY about organized religion is an obstacle to peace.

  • What's a good name for my kitten?

    I found an abandoned kitten about a week ago, and my family still hasn't been able to come up with a name that everyone can agree on. She has tortoise shell markings--mostly dark brown/black, with a lighter brown and golden coloring throughout, a white chest, and four little white paws. Some notable characteristics are the tiger stripe like markings on her cheek, one black toe, and a love of chasing things, climbing, and attacking peoples' feet. :-P

    I'd prefer a name that's a little less common. I was thinking maybe a name from a movie, or from mythology. Someone also suggested naming her after an artist (which is an awesome idea, but it seems like the all coolest names are masculine).
